So, what is car detailing and how is it different from car valeting?
The answer is simply that there is no difference between the two. Car detailing is an American term which over the years has found it’s way across the pond to be used here. In the UK it is more commonly known as car valeting. Car detailing is a service provided by professional company which involves more than your average Sunday morning wash down with the hose and shammy, or taking your car to the corner car wash for a £5 make-over!
With a car detailing service you can expect a full top-to-bottom deep clean of your car from inside to out which will restore your car to it’s original showroom finish, and when you use EPIC, we often exceed your expectations. Of course there are different levels of car detailing services depending on your budget.
